Can anyone share some sources, info etc on the morrigan and her cult and worship which are not new-age or wiccan influenced?
I've read a few, and she has always interested the heck out of me but when I see wiccan sources they usually are quite different from sources which are based on actual Pre-Christian Irish things.

Gimme a I few days to find my pile o links here.... I'm on the iPad and it's past my bedtime..... By whole piles of time....


also its worth mentioning that what was written down was done so after Ireland was christianised, so reading must be done with a small amount of bias, and many texts ad not complete, I will see what I have that is specific to her, it may be a couple days, so please don't be disheartened.

This a dissertation written about the Morrigan, I found it a while ago on one of the Celtic reconstruction websites: http://web.archive.org/web/20011204120238/http://members.loop.com/~musofire/diss/

It doesn't have modern dedication in mind, but it's a very thorough and scholarly study. The website where I found the dissertation does have some resources for general practice, however, so it might also be helpful to you: http://www.tairis.co.uk/
